What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Bloemfontein?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bloemfontein. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips.
